When I was seven, my family moved from suburban California to rural Idaho. In an effort to embrace Northern Idaho culture, my dad took me fishing at a lake near our house. I was really excited. Mostly because I thought that I would get to keep the fish I caught as a pet. My dad spent all day showing me how to thread a worm and cast a line. Every second, I expected to feel a pull on my hook and reel in my new best friend.
